Denial of shore leave

Pursuant to the Immigration Act article 16 and the Immigration Regulations section 4-19, the Chief of Police refuses foreign crew members shore leave in all ports in East Police District. No crew members can leave the ISPS area.

The Act/Regulations opens up for denial of shore leave when this is found to be necessary for reasons of order and security or other particular reasons.

In this case, the Police finds it necessary to implement this measure to prevent the spread of the corona virus.
